My name is Jennie and I currently have 2 rescue great danes, 6 rescue cats, a 17 yr old son, and a husband.
I came here looking for some information on canned food, but this forum seems pretty active, so I'm sure we'll stick around!
I currently feed my cats Wellness grain free kibble. We were doing raw (since my danes are raw fed) but in all honesty, they were just too crazy about it .. like attack me by jumping off the top of the cat tree and knocking it out of my hands before I could set it down crazy .. then acting like little monsters towards each other when it hit the floor.
I said enough is enough once that happened 3 times (which also made quite the mess for me to clean up, walls & floor covered in raw food) and switched them to a high quality grain free kibble. Not only was it just another way to have to be late for work (since you never know how long cleaning that sort of mess takes) but honestly it was a little scary too lol (my cats aren't little).
Anyways (that's for another forum/post), I love my little furballs dearly (as crazy as they may be) so here they are:
(*fair warning .. I like to take photos lol)
(she started this whole tribe) .. she came with the house that my husband and I bought last year. She is something else. She's sweet, friendly, and as stubborn as they come lol. She was extremely pregnant at the time, and on Labor Day last year she blessed us with 5 bouncing baby furballs. I would make a horrible BYB .. because only 2 made it out, we kept the rest lol.
Momma is my husbands favorite .. and although she does follow me (along with the rest of everyone) if I change rooms .. when we're in the same room she sits with my hubs mostly lol.
.. well he got his name because when he was born one of his back legs didn't work right. He out grew it, but the name stuck. He's fine with it! He is a goofball though, and extremely clumsy lol.
is a ham and a lazy lug .. he's also the largest of the kittens, at 15lbs! And yes, He is HEAVY! Did I mention he was a couch potato?
is a little Diva and a spitfire. She will scratch the ever loving bejesus out of you if you are holding her and she decides she wants down lol. She is also very wild looking .. something about her just screams exotic to me. I'm fairly convinced that Momma either has some Mau or Savannah in her (they all naturally have a belly flap, and some other characteristics that suggest it, #1 being their size). Munky got all the wild look tho lol
and the siblings 3 ..rare sight, them all sitting together .. mainly because they are still lol.
could have his own thread (but I won't lol) .. he is definitely my favorite and he knows it. He is like my little shadow, and I love it! Matter of a fact, he's hanging half off a barstool sitting beside me just so he can sit beside me lol. He has some real character, and he is just and all around good cat. I believe he is a Russian Blue mix, mainly because of his silver coloring (he looks shiny like a silver coin from an angle, hard to get on film tho), his temperament, and his mauve paws.
Mr. Diggs came to us courtesy of a dumpster outside of Freds. I took him and his brother home. They stayed at my parents when I moved, but not long after he got into a cat fight .. got a HUGE abscess, and is now our $1,000 kitty. He is a ninja too! Our cats don't go outside .. but Mr. Diggs likes to challenge that rule often lol.
He also does no wrong .. he sits at the bar while I prep/cook and never messes with a thing. I can turn around and leave (as you see) a nice, juicy, leg of lamp sitting there and not worry that a bite will be missing when I turn back lol.
Nilla is our newest resident .. she came from the Birmingham Humane Society. I'm pretty certain she's a full blooded Ragdoll .. she isn't a typical ragdoll though. She can be quite saucy (especially with the other kitties) and she does NOT go limp, she HATES to be held actually lol. That's ok tho, she's pretty sitting on the sofa!
That's a men's size 11 flip flop BTW
And last but not least, my 2 danes (I had 3 up until recently. Sadly I lost my big boy (and my favorite) Bain to bloat a month before his 3rd birthday
and if you made it this far .. here is myself and the hubs (always nice to know who you're talking to isn't it?)
Nice to meet y'all!
